Hi Stroke victim,

Glad that you like this kite. I also feel the same way when I first maiden this kite really very light almost like nothing. Too bad I nv use the 15" handle, kinda of use to the 13" handle. Maybe I should try on the 15" handle to see how the handling. Posted Image

First time using the longer handles myself!! My older Rev 1 had 11", my vented has 13" and now I have 15"!! Gave the 11" to my son for his Rev 2, and now will see which handle works best for me!! :kid_smartass: I've used and like the 13", now I'll see about the 15". Definitely enjoy the kite!!!!:)

Went to Long Beach for the day and used both sets of handles!! Both worked fine, but need to put more time on the 15" to have an opinion of which is better!! I think though, 15" handles weigh more than the SUL, itself!! Felt more balanced, weight wise, with my vented!!! 13" were in the comfort zone!!!! :kid_smartass: Maybe different handles for different kites??? :kid_loved: We'll see!!!!:)

So far, I like them (the 15") with my SUL the best!:kid_smartass: The other kites seem to like the 13", but I'm going to the beach on Thursday and will try them (the 15") out on longer lines!! It's all good, just trying different stuff to see what works best for me and my style!!! ( or lack thereof)!!! Have fun and keep flying!!!!

After awhile experimenting you'll just click with a certain set. They will become the standard all others are compared to.

For me it's my super long-throw titanium handles. I can't use 'em all the time, . . . but in the right conditions,
MAN! it's like Tinkerbell's flying dust has been sprinkled on me and the kite!

I have little bitty short ones for indoors, can't be 8 inches in-between the two attachment points. Again it's a personal choice, there's no one correct path. Two sets of completely different handles for basically the same function, low/no wind conditions.

The Orcon indoor kite doesn't need much more than the slightest guidance, it can be flown standing on one leg.

Outside? those Ti handle are ninja weapons I'm flailing about (in time with music), so please stand clear. Look how much area I need also <HA!>

I'm figuring that out! :kid_smartass: The 15" seem to work best on the SUL! The 13" seem to like my Rev 1 and 1.5 vented!! :kid_smartass: Different handles for different kites!!:)
